Overcoming Recurrent Pregnancy Loss with NaProTechnology

Overcoming Recurrent Pregnancy Loss with NaProTechnology

There are so many things to be grateful for this Thanksgiving.  I was reflecting on why I love being a FertilityCare Practitioner.

I am grateful for the gift of NaProTechnology.  NaProTechnology is not a miracle cure by any means, but it does offer women and couples a real option to help treat fertility health issues.  The goal of NaProTechnology is to restore reproductive health.  This makes NaProTechnology different than standard reproductive healthcare.

This week I am focusing on how NaProTechnology can help women and couples overcome recurrent pregnancy loss.

This is very personal to me.

Estrogen, Progesterone & Mucus, Oh, My! Shining Light on the Fertility Cycle

Back to school happened in August here in Texas, but I know some of you are starting school this September.

Back to school usually means review of past information taught before diving into new information.

I thought this would be a good time to get back to basics with you regarding fertility health.

Many women tell me after attending an Introductory Session with the Creighton Model; where we review the science behind a woman’s fertility cycle and the role of fertility hormones; that they are shocked at how little they knew about their fertility cycle.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! A Reflection

As we enter into the holiday season of Christmas, Chanuakah, and New Years, I am reflecting on the last year.  This last year has had many blessings and much heartache.

I have been blessed to expand my FertilityCare Services in the Dallas area by offering follow-ups at the office of Dr. Michael Jones, one of our local NaProTechnology doctors.  These follow-ups are covered by insurance and we have been able to help countless women with their fertility health.

Last week, during NFP Awareness Week, I had the pleasure of attending the American Academy of FertilityCare™ Professionals annual conference on the campus of Notre Dame. 

This is an academic conference where Practitioners, doctors, and those wanting to promote the Creighton Model and NaProTechnology come together to learn about new advances and find encouragement. 

What Makes Cycle Bleeding Unusual?

What Makes Cycle Bleeding Unusual?

I often meet women in my program that have episodes of unusual bleeding.  

But, so often, these women do not understand that their bleeding is unusual in any way. 

Either they had come to accept it as part of their cycle or they were told by a friend or even a doctor that what they were experiencing was completely normal.

How to Be Your Own Fertility Health Advocate

How to Be Your Own Fertility Health Advocate

Many years ago, I worked in medical research.  I was a clinical research coordinator who conducted drug studies alongside doctors focused on diabetes and arthritis.  

One of my jobs was to discuss patient’s symptoms and reactions to the drugs that were being studied.

I learned a lot during those years working closely with patients and doctors. 

The most important thing I learned was the importance of communication.
